      The Bug

      If there is water nearby, axolotls can pathfind to the water without avoiding holes that are smaller than 2 blocks thick or equal to 2 blocks thick, but more than 4 blocks wide.


      To reproduce, dig a big hole that is 2x5 blocks big and A LOT of blocks deep, place water next to the long side of the hole (if there isn't any) like done in the video below and place the axolotl on the other side of the hole. The axolotl will fall into the hole.

      Or to reproduce, you need to just follow the instructions of MC-208601 and instead of lava, dig the 2x5 hole.

      Observed Behavior

      Axolotls are able to fall into deep holes when pathfinding to water.

      Expected Behavior

      Axolotls should not be able to fall into deep holes when pathfinding to water.
